Director of Care and Quality

St. Vincent's Hospice

Dear candidate,

Thank you for showing an interest in working with us at St Vincent’s Hospice. We are delighted that you are considering joining our team.

St Vincent’s Hospice is a small hospice with a very big heart! We have been serving the people of Renfrewshire, in Scotland since 1988, delivering a range of community and in-patient specialist palliative care services. The hospice is situated in a rural location just outside the village of Howwood, a few miles from Glasgow Airport. The location of our hospice means that our team members can commute from the many beautiful country and seaside villages and towns within less than an hour’s drive, therefore offering a brilliant lifestyle choice for the successful candidate. We’re also happy to support flexible working patterns that enable team members to achieve a great work-life balance.

Following a period of uncertainty and change in 2020, the hospice is financially stable, has a new Chief Executive, and is bedding-in a new staffing structure. In the next phase of our development we are ambitious to provide the very highest standards of person-centred patient care to people at the end of their lives, and to their families, and to continuously improve choice and quality within the services we provide.  We also want to become the employer of choice in our local area, recruiting and retaining “the best of the best”. The Director of Care and Quality will play a pivotal role in achieving these ambitions.

Leading this function will take drive, enthusiasm and resilience, along with a genuine desire to achieve high standards of quality in both our inpatient and community services. It is an excellent opportunity for someone wanting to step up into their first Director role, perhaps along the path towards a Director role in a larger hospice or a CEO role in due course.

If you are a RGN with a post graduate degree in Palliative Care, and your ambition matches ours, then our Chief Executive would love to talk to you, to explain what is happening at St Vincent’s just now and to let you explore if you might be interested in joining us. To set this up, please contact Georgina McGhie with a contact telephone number
